Phil Greenwood studied at the Hornsey and Harrow Colleges of Art and was taught by some of Britain’s finest contemporary artists - Ken Howard RA, Charles Bartlett RE, RWS and the late Christopher Saunders RA. After an initial career in teaching he became a full time printmaker in 1971 and has been exhibiting both nationally and internationally for the past forty years. He is widely acknowledged as one of the countries leading printmakers.
Phil’s extraordinary ability to capture and convey the atmosphere of a landscape is fundamental to his work. His economical use of colour is heavily belied by rich and vibrant pieces that are exquisitely designed. With quiet mystery he is able to portray both the complexity and simplicity of natures double-edged personality and beauty.
With work hanging in many private and public collections through out the world Phil regularly exhibits at the Royal Academy and the Bankside Gallery. He has also exhibited work at the British Embassy in Brussels, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Tate Gallery, London.
